This is a first impression after about 20 hours of use. The computer is quite fast. Modem and keyboard and everything are well-designed. The fan runs very quietly; the machine seems to be staying plenty cool. The setup was very easy, and there were almost no junk programs to erase, just a simple and clean installation.

There are a couple of inaccuracies in the product description, in case people want exact technical details. The description lists the computer with an i5-2500 processor. It is actually an i5-3450. No complaints here--I believe the chip is as good or better as the one listed. Also--no DVD drive is listed; the computer comes with a DVD multi.

I spent a little extra money to get the ASUS over other brands after reading quality reviews online. Hopefully that will turn into a good decision--if not, I will come and rewrite the review!

This computer, with a 2 TB hard drive and 8 GB memory is very fast and able to multi-task many programs without even a hiccup in performance. I have not been able to get CPU usage over 50% and memory usage over 60%.

The unit arrives and was put into service right way, just under a month latter the Seagate 2TB Barracuda 'Green' drive controller takes a vacation. Thankfully nightly back up to another drive will save us once we can get an identical drive. Am coming to love this model (there are many other Amazon vendors still selling the 6830 units) but this experience has forcefully reminded me why we avoid that drive maker whenever we can. Tried to return it but Amazon has stopped selling it, for us it was more cost effect to just swap the drive in house. Again, the basic package is good one and that we will likely get more of (putting WD drive with 5 year warranties into them).

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that the seagate hard drive did not work properly. If you want to send the unit in for service you can and we can replace that drive for you.

If you are satisifed with the unit with the seagate removed then I hope that has resolved all your issues.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me at cl-jeffrey@asus.com which I reside in the U.S

ASUS strives to meet and exceeds our customer expectations within our warranty policy.

I've owned this computer for 6 months and it has run just fine the entire time. I did have one fairly serious problem when I first received the computer. I had a PCI express video card that I wanted to install. Unfortunately, the power supply was entirely inadequate. So I immediately had to purchase a better power supply in order to install my video card. Pretty much a pain in the tail, but besides that, it's fine. I also had to specifically disable the wireless card so I could just run a wired internet connection. Minor gripes, but if you are looking to install any sort of mid range video card or higher, be prepared to acquire a new power supply or perhaps look at a different model.

I purchased this computer, because it seems that out of all the PC brands ASUS has the highest rating.

Upon getting this computer I updated it to Windows 8.

So far I've only had one glitch on this computer, where the USB ports were not recognized/working, and it required a restart. I haven't had that come up again, but that's why I'm only giving this product 4 vs. 5 Stars.

Other than that it's very fast, and is a good deal for the price.

After a week of intermittent problems with the wireless card, it stopped working altogether. Spent a week on an off with ASUS who insisted it was a software problem when it was obviously a hardware problem based on using Microsoft's trouble shooter. Since ASUS didn't know how to fix a hardware problem, as a last stupid result, they had me reformat the hard drive, losing all the programs, not to mention the time involved in installing them. They finally agreed that it should be sent back for repair. It has been 3 business days since they have received the computer, via UPS tracking, I have not received acknowledgement that it has been received or under repair. The rest of the computer seemed to work okay. I purchased an ASUS laptop 2 years ago and it is great. Not so sure about their desktop!

The wireless card was replaced and the unit is now working. It took over a week from the time the repair center said it was being shipped out in mid November to actually ship it (received Dec 3). The email that indicated the unit was repaired did not include the carrier or a tracking number. I had to contact ASUS multiple times before I received an answer.

While all my other devices, IPad, Kindle, ASUS laptop, phone, can connect to the wireless throughout my house. The wireless card in the ASUS desktop needs to be in "close" proximity to the router. What good does that do? I may as well run a cable to connect it directly if it has to be that close.

this computer is quite decent with a few drawbacks. It has the gusto to get things done quite smoothly and has been reliable so far. Needed a computer that still had windows 7 for software compatibility reasons, and I have had success with ASUS and Acer laptops in the past.

the drawbacks:

the power button and dvd try button are identical, led to a few power downs accidentally

the asus bloatware is pretty annoying. tried to cope with it, but uninstalled it all as it was very annoying. Not as bad at HP bloatware but just annoying enough to have to remove.

Had this PC for about a year now and have yet to have one single problem, it's a fast as the day I bought it....well thats a lie becasue since I upgraded this to Windows 8 it's way faster but 7 ran perfectly too. This is a solid system, everything works as it's supposed to, it runs all games/programs I have tried on it, even super graphic intense ones. I can run them on Ultra settings without FPS lag. The wireless is super fast and convienently designed, it looks very sharp, the PC set's up easily and has plenty of cooling, it hasen't once gotten even warm while I have been using it even for extensive periods of time, the graphics card is great and the cd/dvd is super fast. Great system, great OS, perfect desktop. This with the ASUS 27" monitor is a real treat and worth every penny.
